On the waterfront of Corio Bay Geelong, the Royal Geelong Yacht Club is one of Australia’s most successful yacht clubs.
The Royal Geelong Yacht Club welcomes sailing and social patrons alike. The clubrooms offer a cafe and a fully licensed bar.
The Royal Geelong Yacht Club prides itself on being a family club, with generations of families have contributed to the rich culture that the organization now enjoys. Following the huge success of the “Geelong Regatta” now known as the “Festival of Sails”, which was first held on Corio Bay in 1844, the enthusiastic organizing committee unanimously voted for the formation of the Geelong Yacht Club in 1859. On the 27th of March 1924, the Club was granted a Royal Warrant and became the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
From these humble beginnings, the club has grown to be the home to the best sailing experience you can have, with over 1200 Members ranging in age from 5 to 90. Being an innovative club, strategic to introducing sailing to the community and strengthening the membership base is always uppermost in planning the way ahead.
The Royal Geelong Yacht Club has made a major commitment to Discover Salling and continues to develop youth involvement.
